Thanks

I get these lounges free with my Amex and its ok. Nothing like a proper business class lounge though. No champagne and not much food. But still better hanging out with the plebs and it is nice and quiet.

Are you a bit up yourself Benjai?

I get straight in to the Virgin UpperClass Lounge and it's a different world at T3 and yes I'm a bit up myself ;-) But I do fly 4-5 times a month with V, although I think you can pay £30 as a first timer and walk in.....!

Maybe, but he does have a point. Using lounges is a game changer and makes the airport experience so much more pleasant.

But some people have Amex cards, travel business class and don't need to rub it in to others who don't.

Agreed! I've found it hard pressed to find a discount for the basic lounges, so thought this a good deal and booked for our nyc trip

If you're at the airport early enough to spend any significant amount of time in a lounge, you're travelling wrong.

The platinum charge card, gives you the Priority Pass and unlimited access to pretty much at least one lounge in every airport I've been in. Most are not really good though, except probably the Hong Kong one which is actually pretty decent.

Ah, perhaps my last line was a bit harsh, but that's pretty much the main reason to go into a lounge right? To get some peace and quiet. Was just trying to manage expectations in pointing out that lounges vary a lot in quality.

This is somewhat decent, but nothing like say the Virgin lounge. £22.5 is possibly just about ok value but it's still nearly £100 for a family of four which is definitely too much.

Not been to the HK one will let you later on this year but probably the best one i have been in was
Wingtips Lounge Vip Room Jfk International Airport
Also recommend Ba Galleries club lounge Terminal 5 Heathrow

Anyone can get an Amex (subject to the normal credit score and paying an annual fee), it doesn't make them any better than anyone else so not sure why you're having a dig at this guy?
Get the Virgin Atlantic Amex, £140 annual fee and a shed load of bonus miles for signing up. In the first 12 months, we've had 2 free flights to Orlando (economy) and 2 free Premium Economy to Los Angeles.
Yes, we had to pay the taxes but even after paying said taxes and taking the £140 fee into account, we're still £1100 up on flights we needed to book anyway.

IMO, without getting into the big debate, NEVER ever pay the annual fee for any card! Cancel just before the 12 months, leave it minimum of 6 months and sign up again. We do this regularly, I sign up (normally when there is a good TCB promotion on), get the card, recommend my partner, so get a bonus there, we both spend £2k in the first 2 months, more bonus miles, Even better you can get the BA credit card AND the Amex Gold Rewards card and get the bonus/promotional miles for both as the Rewards Charge Card isn't charged as a credit card....

I would never, ever pay for a credit card...... that said, I'd never use miles for economy long haul flights, even just paying the taxes means often they are v.poor value, use them to upgrade OR for partner flights in other countries (e.g. mine are currently being used for flights within South America on airlines such as LAN/TAM, but also used them in Australia for domestic/international travel on Qantas).

Sorry to hijak your thread OP, voted hot BTW.

Good point but when you get the Virgin Atlantic card, they automatically bill the annual fee to your first statement so no way around it.
